The UK has announced plans to spend by 2006 an extra £1bn ($1.5bn) annually on social services. The initiative will be backed by a "radical" reform programme aimed at improving care of the elderly outside the hospital setting, thereby increasing hospital throughput. By 2005, the government aims to expand social services by 70,000 cases.
